A truly spectacular meal was had here. The attention to detail in the plating of the food is worth every cent paid. Beautifully prepared, seasoned, delicious food, presented by well trained waiters. An absolute treat.

Had the mushroom soup, the trout, and the crepes suzette, all of which were excellent. Exceeded only by the service, which was so efficient and genuinely friendly without being intrusive. As with the rest of the hotel, the decor is a bit stuffy, but would consider that a very minor factor.

Th fine dining experience was alright. Nothing to write home about. The food was ok, just the usual food you get around Harare, so it was a bit disappointing. I hope they will improve and take their restaurant to its former glory.
